Waffles: Also pretty damn glorious.

Get gooey with it. It's OK.

We went with the classic salt and pepper combo, but you could get fancy with it and add Cajun seasoning or Old Bay.

Heat up your waffle iron, and give both the top and bottom a decent dousing of anti-stick spray.

Don't leave any holes, but make sure it's about as thick on the edges as it is on the inside of the pile

Close the waffle maker, and let 'er cook for 5-ish minutes.
